“I’m not in it, just to put that out there,” said Gillan.

So what are her plans for the 50th anniversary special?

“I’m going to watch it!”

And?

“I think I’m going to be in America, so I’ll probably round up all the people who like to watchDoctor Who in the area. We’ll probably watch it and drink PG Tips and eat Jammy Dodgers, if I can get them.”
